R2-D2 Troubleshooting

*Have you download the full user guide?
https://www.model-space.com/gb/a...e/download/file_id/4270/

* Battery Specification
3.6/3.7v nominal
Button Top
Over 2000 mAh capacity (recommended 2600-2800 mAh but can be over).
Over 3 Amps discharge output
Unprotected type

All five factors are a must have.

*Have you initiated the battery pack?
The batteries must be charged using the charger supplied.
It is very important to charge/prepare the batteries before placing them
into the battery box and R2.

You must not fit batteries into the battery box without having first fully charged
them using the check charger supplied in 92.


*Make sure that your batteries make contact with the battery box
terminals at each end of each battery.

*Check all the connections, all cables to the correct terminals, have
they been connected correctly?

*Plug the mains adapter into R2-D2 and plug the other end into the mains
and turn it on. Leave it for a couple of seconds, then turn off and
unplug both ends. (This is a protection procedure to activate the
battery, and without doing this, R2-D2 won’t turn on.
) You do not
need to repeat this process, and in future the adapter is only used to
recharge the batteries.

*Does R2 turn on?
Turn on the main power switch under R2’s body and press the 6th bottom
button (Power On/Off) on his front panel. He will jerk forward about 2cm
to calibrate his motors.

*Does R2 perform self-checks? R2 moves a little, then rotates head right,
then rotates head left

*Are the R2 status lights showing correctly

*Turn on Patrol mode with button 1.
R2-D2 will start to explore his surroundings, robotically avoiding
obstacles.

*Please Note:
R2-D2 needs to be connected to a smartphone to get R2 to perform all of
its functions.
The Issue 6 LCD screen and the Issue 22 logic function display LCD are
only functional/switched on in App mode. They are not functional in
manual mode.

*Starting R2-D2 with main adapter plugged in.
His front red/blue light will change colour in a flashing sequence to
indicate the charge level.

*Make sure that your mobile device actually supports Google Play/Android or iOS

Devices such as Amazon Fire operating system is based on Android, but it doesn’t have any of Google’s apps or services.
